The Mets place Yoenis Cespedes on the DL amid golf controversy | FOX Sports

On MLB Radio they were talking about him playing five hours of golf on a game day while he’s troubled by his calf problem. If true, I can see why the Mets organization and his teammates would be bothered.

If Cespedes wouldn’t pull the plug on his golf hobby, should the Mets have done so? That’s a question the New York Post’s Mike Vaccaro asked:

You can blame Cespedes for bad judgment without blaming his hobby on complicating his recovery. These are not mutually exclusive things. And now the Mets’ leadership — starting with Collins, starting with Sandy Alderson — must ask themselves if maybe it wouldn’t have been worth a serious chat in the past few days, asking their offensive centerpiece to maybe put the clubs away while his leg was still howling.

Townsend (BLS): No one is buying Derek Jeter’s hole-in-one video

DER-EK CHEAT-ER (clap, clap, clap, clap, clap)...

The video in question was posted by Jeter’s sister, Sharlee, who is also the president of his Turn 2 Foundation. It’s a charity event, so everything they’re doing is ultimately for a good cause, but it’s difficult to get past what appears to be a staged event. ...

Based on the smirk on Jeter’s face before he even tees off, he was either very confident or he knew they were pranking the masses. We’ll go with that latter, especially since there’s no real evidence the ball went in the cup. In fact, we’re not even sure the ball landed before the crowd erupted into cheers. If so, then maybe he knocked it in on the fly.

This isn’t to say Derek Jeter didn’t hit a hole-in-one on Friday, or that he’s not capable. But this also isn’t to say that’s he not capable of having a little harmless fun at our expense while drawing more attention to his tournament and his foundation.

Yoenis Cespedes Plans to Join PGA Tour After Baseball

Does Yoenis Cespedes have a future on the PGA Tour?

The New York Mets slugger certainly seems to think so…

“He’s got a complete game, honestly,” trainer Chris Wray told the The Times. “If he would take lessons and leave baseball, he could play on the Tour. He’s a three, four handicap, and he’s playing part time.”
